My Design Principles

Always design for people

Understand people’s needs, motivations, pain points and limitations. Focus on what they want and need and the rest will come.

Delight but don’t distract

Don’t let design get in the way of what people need to know, understand or do. That said, never miss a chance to delight…

Less is more, More is less

Get lost in the detail

It’s the little things that will inevitably make or break a design. Pay attention to error handling, messaging, interaction subtleties, thank you messages and confirmations. No more ‘forgotten pages’.

Put it out there

Everyone will have an opinion about design. So long as I am designing for people, I must respect, consider and act upon these opinions accordingly. Scrutiny is the key to succeeding as a designer. It’s nothing personal.

Tiffany really understands how to run collaborative projects, especially by managing the people that participate in them. She provides excellent guidance and structure, while ensuring that team members have freedom to articulate new ideas and solutions. She understands how usability maximises value to both the user and the organisation and is an asset to any user experience project.
